What Happened to the House of Israel?

In 2 Kings 17-18, we have the story of the Captivity of the northern house of Israel and also all of the southern house of Judah except for the city of Jerusalem(2 Kings 18:13). So all of the house of Judah except for a small portion went into the Assyrian Captivity. The remainder of Judah went into the Babylonian Captivity, which Jeremiah 52:28-30 shows there were only 4600.

The people known as “jews” today in the state of israeli, or anywhere in the world, are not Israelite’s or Judah. They are Ashkenazim Khazar s and Edomites and have no ancestry to Jacob at all. So all 13 tribes were taken into Captivity, Never to return to the Middle east. 2 Samuel 7:10.

Several decades after the dispersion of Israel which began to take place following the Assyrian and Babylonian deportations of the people from Palestine, a small remnant returned to Judaea to rebuild the temple. This remnant was to provide Yahweh with the means by which He would ultimately redeem Israel through His sacrifice as Yahshua Christ. After this sacrifice, the news of which was to be brought to the “lost” sheep of Israel (Ezekiel chapter 34), the city of Jerusalem was to be destroyed.

This is prophesied in Daniel chapter 9. The destruction of Jerusalem was necessary because “satan” (the adversary) had taken it over (Ezekiel chapter 35), which Paul attests to at Romans 16:20. For this reason, Paul explained in Romans chapter 9 that he was concerned only for his “kinsmen according to the flesh” in Judaea, and then he goes on to compare Jacob, the vessels of mercy, and Esau, the vessels of destruction (Romans 9:1-13, 21-22)

This process of “satan” taking over Jerusalem began when the Edomites moved into much of the lands of Israel and Judah after the deportations. Then shortly before 130 BC, the reigning Maccabees high priest (who had all the authority of a king), John Hyrcanus, decided to conquer all of the cities of ancient Israel inhabited at that time by Edomites and Canaanites, and to either convert them to the religion of Judaea (first called “Judaism” by the Greeks) or to let them leave the land, or to be slain. (Maccabees was a name given to the Asamonean dynasty of high priests who ruled Jerusalem from about 150 BC down to about 36 BC when the last of them was slain by Herod.)

The greater numbers of these people readily converted to Judaism, and thenceforth were known as Judaeans (“jews” in most translations). This is described in detail by the historian Josephus, who wrote after 70 AD, and is also summarized by the Greek geographer Strabo nearly a century before Josephus wrote. Strabo, writing from a general Greek perspective, says in the 16th book of his Geography: “The Idumaeans [Edomites] are [an arab tribe], but owing to sedition they were banished from there, joined the Judaeans, and shared in the same customs with them” (16.2.34).

In another place, Strabo attests that the Judaeans were “mixed up” with the Idumaeans (16.2.2). When the first Herod, whom Josephus on at least four occasions attests was an Edomite, through treachery and bribery became king of Judaea, he destroyed the last Maccabees high priest and all of the possible rival claimants to the position. From that time he used the position of the high priest as a political tool. By the time of Christ, the high priests and many of the influential men of the temple and its religious sects were actually Edomites. There are many New Testament statements that reveal this, which become fully evident to those who first understand the history surrounding these events.

So what has happened to all of these hundreds of thousands of Israelite’s that were taken into Captivity?

Who is Yahweh’s Lost Sheep? Are they all peoples or just certain peoples? What do the Scriptures say?

Matthew 15:24

“When Israel was a child, I loved him, and called My son out of Egypt.”(Hosea 11:1).

God became the Shepherd of His people Israel, “Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us and not we ourselves, we are His people and the sheep of His pasture” (Psalm 100:3). “For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand” (Psalm 95:7). “So we Thy people, and sheep of Thy pasture will give Thee thanks forever: we will show forth Thy praise to all generations.” (Psalm 70:13). “Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock” (Psalm 80:1). “He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are young” (Isaiah 40:11). “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). “Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattereth Israel will gather him, as a shepherd doth his flock” (Jeremiah 31:10) “My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains, they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place” (Jeremiah 50:6). “And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd” (I Kings 22:17). “My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill yea, My flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them” (Ezekiel 34:6). “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people.” (Luke 1:68) Besides that, there are many more.

All of the above Scriptures specifically say that Israel, the Israelite’s, is Yahweh’s sheep. They say nothing about any other race or any other peoples.

Yahshua even added to this when he said: “I am come ONLY for the Lost Sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 10:5-6; 15:24. The Catholic doctrine of Universalism teaching that all sinners are lost sheep, is from pagan Babylonian Mystery Religion, mixed with True Christianity and taught as the Gospel in all judeo-christian churches today. Yahweh have Mercy on our Ignorance.

Many Nations

Beginning in Genesis 12 we have the Abrahamic Covenant. In that Covenant, YHVH tells Abraham that He will become the Father of Many Nations.

But that this Many Nations would come through the seed(son) that was Promised to him and Sarah. Ishmael and the 6 sons of Keturah were not part of this covenant. Only the sons that came through Isaac and Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel are part of this Many Nations.

Where are these Many Nations today?

Where were these Many Nations during the life of Paul and Yahshua?

Where were these Many Nations in 500 BC, 1000 BC, 1500 BC?
